Teaser Tuesdays


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly event hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.


  • Here is how it works.
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that others can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I'm reading The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman!




"There was a hand in the darkness, and it held a knife. The knife had a handle of polished black bone, and a blade finer and sharper than any razor."

So begins The Graveyard book!


(P.S. I've been super busy this past week, so I'll try this week to get a review or two up. We will see.... Thanks for stopping by!)

33 Witty Remarks!:

Great teaser! Have this one on my TBR stack, but with a different cover. Can't decide which one I like best, as they're both cool looking. Love Neil Gaiman! Looking forward to your review! :)
